A planetary thermostat in the stratosphere would be ungovernable. Deciding when to implement it and agreeing what the setting should be and how it should be governed in the imaginable future would demand an unprecedented – and simply unattainable – degree of trust and cooperation among the nations of the world.

The skies of several east Tennessee cities were heavily bombarded with jet plumes Thursday, and in at least two cities the bright day ended entirely overcast with high altitude smog in the lower stratosphere. The stratosphere, where jets travel at about 40,000 feet, is the locale where sky stripes are injected; regular weather is generally at about 20,000 feet.
David Karnes of TV3 in Chattanooga began his early forecast with, “Good Thursday. Today will be another nice one. We will get to the low 80s this afternoon with clouds building through the day. *** Tonight will be overcast with the low dropping to 65. Friday will start out nice.”
Mr. Karnes’ graphics showed masses of filmy clouds moving north in a swath as wide as Tennessee.
If indeed Tennessee and other states are the object of stratospheric aerosol geoengineering, it appears that the program gears up prior to the arrival of damp weather. Environmentalist Dane Wigington of Geoengineeringwatch.org says jet deposits prevent rain from falling and interrupt the hydrological cycle.
Days I mark as “chemtrail days” often bring an intersection over Chattanooga massive sky plumes and the arrival of rainclouds — and, often enough, no or little rainfall. Injections of particulate prevents formation of raindrops by saturating the sky with microscopic particles, essentially confusing clouds into not allow water drops to attain enough size to fall to the ground.
Sky striping is either a military program in which loaded tankers spew out gaseous particulates intended to stay aloft for days and deflect sunlight. More than 800 C-130 tankers and variants have seen military service, each with capacity of 40 tons. Or specially designed tinctures in jet fuel emit a finely tuned waste product that creates durable clouds at high altitude. Weather modification has been U.S. policy since the 1960s.
Maybe a natural explanation works better? Are the clouds innocuous water vapor plumes that the EPA in its fact sheet and weather forecaster tell of? Visual evidence suggests no. I see many clouds today that stop and start, as if “turned on” and “turned off.” Forecasters such as Paul Barys dismiss all talk of sky stripes as being policy or having any affect on real weather.
Regardless of human health and environmental conditions on the ground, the program is entering at least its third summer. Its effect is continual dry weather, with the sun dilating hugely in the sky as the reflective aerosols do at least some of the work scientists such as Paul Crutzen assign it. Program opponents such as Mr. Wigington say so-called solar radiation management is intensifying earth’s surface temperatures.
Mr. Wigington on May 9 posted an essay with a coauthor in which he seeks to explain why the earth is warming at the rate of four Hiroshima bombs per second (2.5 x 1014 Joules per second). He blames rising temperatures and bizarre disasters such as the California drought as the result of SAG run by national governments.
“The study, led by Dr. Kevin Trenberth, found that net changes to clouds and related additions of water vapor to the upper atmosphere is a positive or amplifying feedback to human caused warming. In other words, the way human heat alters clouds and the related hydrological cycle results in yet more heat being trapped by the Earth System.”
According to a paper reported on in an English newspaper, “the changes are caused principally by changes to clouds and water vapor, and other short-term weather patterns. Clouds have the ability to reflect sunlight back to space; however, clouds also have the ability to trap more heat within the Earth’s atmosphere. So, short-term fluctuations in clouds have large impacts on the net rate of heat gain by the Earth.”
Mr. Wigington is the environmentalist whose drumbeat of publication avers that operators in the deep state are effectively committing planetary suicide with the complicity of scientists, whose academic papers largely theorize about mass chemtrailing to save the planet. “The climate science community is helping to hide the ongoing geoengineering crimes by their constant attempt to explain away the completely engineered as being ‘natural.’ *** Worse still, the ongoing climate engineering fallout is contaminating the entire planet with toxic metal and chemical particulates.”
Nasa the space agency says that cirrus clouds of the kind created by jets are extensive enough to account for the global warming trend in the U.S. between 1975 and 1994, according to research in April 2004. A recent ocean sky test reported in British media says a single jet could create clouds covering tens of thousands of square miles.
Weather management seems like a fruitless enterprise, one bringing headaches and imponderables to the state actors behind it. Weather shifts about, cannot be really managed or controlled. Weather at best can be manipulated at the margin. Why cover the skies of Tennessee with persistent contrails one day, generating a happy plasma against sunlight, when, next day, the stratosphere has dispersed the deposits and scattered clouds hither and yon, with the aerosol tonnage drifting down toward field, farm, town and river?
Among the critics of any proposed mass cloud-making program is Mike Hulme of King’s College London. “Through the transformation of land, the production of energy, the consumption of materials, and the begetting of children humans have altered the physical processes of climate around the world,” he tells a sky striping conference in Berlin in 2014.
“And we have been doing so for a very long time, certainly for a thousand years, maybe for ten thousand. The experimentation with climate that has resulted from these activities has been inadvertent and unintentional. But to deliberately change the condition of the planet’s atmosphere in order to compensate for an induced planetary heating, is an entirely different form of experimentation. It is intentional intervention. It suggests a supreme confidence in human knowledge and ingenuity – a confidence approaching arrogance.”
Weather control programs, he and other scientists warn, are ungovernable and will lead to warfare and strife.
